The Christmas cactus is starting to bloom. Amazing how fast the little buds turn into these complicated floral displays. This image was made using light painting techniques. I held the shutter open and waved a small LED flashlight over the bloom from different directions. Then in Photoshop I stacked two of the images with the most interesting lighting and blended them together to create this image. The texture, color and dimensionality of the bloom makes it look like a strange insect was caught in flight.
